The 2022 WNBA Finals featured a highly anticipated best-of-five series between the Las Vegas Aces and the Connecticut Sun. WNBA Legend Becky Hammon, in her first year as head coach of the team, led the Aces to a 3-1 series win to earn Las Vegas their first professional women’s basketball title. Hammon’s championship win added an exclamation point to her season after earning the title of 2022 WNBA Coach of the Year, making her the first former player to earn the honor in her debut season as a WNBA head coach and the only one to win the award while coaching the franchise for which she had previously played.
